Mariveles indigent workers get helping hand

He also reassured that the government is continuously rolling out vaccines to far-flung communities to ensure that more Filipinos are safeguarded from severe symptoms of Covid-19.

The team of Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go visited Mariveles, Bataan to provide immediate assistance to indigent residents during a two-day relief activity at the SFB 13 and DLX Building of Freeport Area of Bataan in Mariveles.

The senator’s team grouped the 2,126 beneficiaries into smaller batches and implemented necessary health protocols to ensure everyone’s safety as they distributed meals and masks to the residents as well as phablets, bicycles and new pairs of shoes to select individuals.

Representatives from the Department of Social Welfare and Development extended financial support through its Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation program.

Go, in his video message, encouraged those eligible to take part in the government’s vaccination drive and once again underscored the importance of getting inoculated to boost their defenses against Covid-19 and help the country return to normalcy.

He also reassured that the government is continuously rolling out vaccines to far-flung communities to ensure that more Filipinos are safeguarded from severe symptoms of Covid-19.

The senator, who heads the Senate Committee on Health, also expressed concern that the pandemic has disrupted the provision of some vital health services for the sick and other vulnerable groups. He then offered additional assistance so they can receive the treatment and medication they require without worrying about the expenses.

He advised the beneficiaries to visit Mariveles Mental Wellness and General Hospital and Bataan General Hospital and Medical Center in Balanga City where there are Malasakit Centers available to help them with their medical expenses.
